I took a stroll in my yard today to say goodbye to winter and hunt for the signs of spring.
Snow has melted
No clumps left behind.
Robins scurry about
Happily searching for morsels.
Daffodil heads poke through the soil
Anxious to drink in the sun.
Tulip leaves short and stout
Ready to stretch towards the sky.
Asparagus not yet rising
Too soon for their knobby spears to appear.
The sun and blue sky overhead
Brings the promise of warmer days to come.
